Every week, our knitters gather to share their purls of wisdom and get in the loop on each other’s latest project, and usually end up in stitches spinning yarns. Whether you knit for pleasure, distraction or just practical economics, or you’ve never done it before and want to give it a try, there’s always room for another loom. Learn, refine, or teach a skill that makes your gift-giving budget lighter weight or support a student-led altruistic project like knitting chemo caps, beanies for babies, lap blankets or other creative applications.
You are invited to a community gathering on Thursday, October 3, to learn more about and give input to the Better Market Street project.
Better Market Street is the City's multi-agency project to transform 2.2 miles of Market Street from Octavia Boulevard to Stuart Street, enhancing safety and accessibility, improving transit performance, replacing aging infrastructure, and revitalizing the corridors streetscape.
The project is advancing toward approval this fall and in the coming months. Team members from San Francisco Public Works and San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency will be joining us for community meetings to provide updates on the project.
At our first meeting, we will hear an overview of the project with an emphasis on the first phase of the project: Market Street between Eighth and Fifth streets. The team will also discuss proposed transit stops and passenger drop-off zones.
Please join us at 1155 Market Street, 10th floor, on Thursday, Oct. 3, 4:30-6 p.m.
The LightHouse is scent-free. Please abstain from wearing colognes, perfumes, or other scented products. Additionally, coffee must be securely lidded at all times and citrus should not be peeled on the premises. Thanks for supporting our efforts to respect chemical sensitivities.
